Thousands of votes already cast for next month's British Poker Awards

Friday, 24 August 2012

The poker loving public have been turning out in their thousands to vote for their favourites at this year's British Poker Awards. Fans still have until mid-September to cast their votes in categories including Best Tournament Player, Best Cash Player, Best Online Player and Poker Personality of the Year.

The nominees in each category have been selected by a judging panel that includes Bluff Europe,,, and “The Voice of Poker” himself, Jesse May.

One man hoping for further success is former award-winner Neil Channing who said, “I’m hoping September 17th will be the highlight of my month. The old mantelpiece is already doing a fair bit of creaking but it could come under severe pressure after the British Poker Awards.”

$18m man Antonio Esfandiari, a former presenter of the British Poker Awards, has also given his backing to the event, saying “It’s a great way to bring in the players and celebrate in people’s triumphs. Poker is such a big thing, it needs to have an awards show.”

Tickets for the ceremony itself, which will be held aboard the HMS President in London on 17th September, are available at for £20 each.
